Warm and homey family- and pet-friendly resort in scenic Lake Tahoe
A friendly staff greets guests at this homey resort. From the Big Pines Mountain House, it is a two-minute walk to the shore of scenic Lake Tahoe and a five-minute walk to the casinos, restaurants and shopping of Lake Tahoe Boulevard. The outdoor heated swimming pool (seasonal) is as popular as the private beach. Pets are welcome (fees apply).


Highlights
  • Walking distance to skiing, boating and golf
  • Access to private beach
  • Seasonal heated outdoor swimming pool
Rooms

The decor in the 70 spacious rooms is standard motel fare, with floral or velvet bedspreads and a small sitting area, but all rooms come equipped with cable television, a coffee maker, free Wi-Fi and free local phone calls. Some rooms have gas mini-kitchens and gas fireplaces. Guests also enjoy high-quality towels, linens and toiletries.


Features

After enjoying a complimentary continental breakfast, guests will want to curl up in front of a floor-to-ceiling stone hearth and gas fireplace in the lobby. With private beach access and a location that is walking distance from shopping and dining in Heavenly Village, the location is second to none.

Very close to the Heavenly gondola

I usually book this hotel for the ski season in the winter. For me the key feature is it's closeness to the Heavenly gondola. I usually gear up and just walk to the gondola and boom. The room is very standard but for the price is a good choice.

Gear up and just walk to the Heavenly gondola. No need to use your car and find parking.

Great bargain

I stayed off season at a remarkably low price. The place was easily worth twice the cost. A block off the main drag - no traffic noise but easy access. Older style but spacious and comfy rooms.

Good location with extreme affordability

Excellent location and very affordable. If your out sight-seeing, eating, gambling, shopping, and not in your room much except to sleep and shower then this hotel is just what you need. It is in walking distance to all the shops, restaurants, casinos, lake & beach. Would definitely stay there again.

Clean room, great location

This hotel was tucked away in a quiet area walking distance from the lake and only a few blocks from several casinos, shopping and restaurants. Loved it!

Quiet, Clean, Private

Nice place. Room was just fine. When there are vacancies, management doesn't stick everyone together for their convenience.
